From having 18 kids on the team, Coach Sarah had to pick two of them who will be battling on the semi-finals after making it to the sing-offs. During the sing-offs, six kids battled with each a chosen song they need to perform. The kids went through tough trainings in order to be picked by the coach. The drum roll was intense and Coach Sarah picked Darren first and then Lyca.
When the time came and Coach Sarah had to choose only two among them, she was emotional. She explained to the kids that they were not losers and each and every one of them had its own timing and time when to win.
